Popped in on the spur of the moment after shopping and had evening tea. The choice was ample and prices reasonable. We both went for Fish (Haddock) chips and mushy peas. My fish was battered and deep fried and my wife's grilled. I can only say they were both delicious as were the home made chips and mushy peas. The... More

It really DOES taste like quality homecooked food rather than a serving from chef mike.(kitchen nightmares reference haha) Prices are £7.50 for a main... More

My very first impression on The Barge when arriving in Grimsby is that it just appeared to be a dive bar type place.

It hasn't disappointed yet altho today the Yorkshire pudding was a little tough to handle. The portions are well generous and the food is... More

We were here on Lincoln Christmas market weekend had the Sunday lunch menu very good vegetables served separate very nice. The only issue we had was we were charge twice on the bill for the cokes because we asked for large cokes. Food very good but feel abit rip off with drinks.

Excellent all round - food, service and beer. No card machine but told in advance. Visiting family from elsewhere and would be more than happy to have this quality on my doorstep ( accepting that I'll get charged more for it!!) 👍👍😃😃😃😃

Very big portions, the food took some time to come but there was 7 of us. It's not the nicest place to eat, not like eating in a restaurant but the food was good and reasonable prices.

Nice place, friendly staff & really big portions, something different adjacent to the shopping centre, worth a visit.
